I saw another tip for this and wanted to expand a little. I did this as well and it works GREAT!!!! I used an old lamp I had at home, stripped off the shade and used the top round piece for the carousel, used the existing lamp base and center pole and attached it to the carousel with a lock nut, painted it with fusion spray paint and it looks and functions like the real deal! Cost versus clip it up? $0 for me/ $45 to 60 for the clip it up!
